Catharina Cheung

Catharina Cheung is Head of Content at Journo Resources and a freelance writer, editor, and translator, based in Hampshire by way of Hong Kong and Singapore.

After obtaining a Masters in Literary Linguistics at the University of Nottingham, Catharina moved back to Asia and turned a lifetime of blogging and scribbling in journals into a writing career. She writes widely across beats, but primarily considers herself a cultural writer, interested in delving into historical heritage and telling the stories of underrepresented people. Her work has been published in platforms such as Campaign Asia, Localiiz, Humans of Hong Kong, Squarefoot magazine, Hong Kong Living magazines, and the Hong Kong Tourism Board.

Catharina is now on a journey of reconnecting with British culture after years of being away. An aspiring polyglot — brushing up on Korean, Japanese, and French atm — she’s always looking for ways to support other Hongkongers in the UK, is a firm advocate for feminist, race-related, and LGBTQ+ issues, and a veteran BTS stan. (Still waiting for “Ddaeng” to be officially released…)

When she’s not scheming up ways to slowly turn her home into a menagerie, you will most likely find her singing both sides of Disney duets (that’s the old opera training coming in handy) and belting out show tunes, or furtively buying more books despite her ever-growing TBR.
